Yes just go ahead and delete these files. They will just be skipped at startup. Good Luck

Robotech: Battlecry 1.64 Gig before...
Remove the following:
MediavcResourcesxboxvcMovie

Note: You can remove the entire folder or a couple of movies if you like either way still works wink.gif

But if you remove the entire folder it will save 1.01 Gig

Thus making it small enough to fit on a CDR (622MB)

3 Gigs of movies?

Are those all cutscenes, end scene, unneeded garbage? Kinda ruins a game to remove all the cutscenes and end scene, no?

Given that each file ends with a county code (fr=French, ge=German, it=Italian, etc.) I would guess that they are for different languages and as long as you don't speak that language you really don't need them. As for the movies directory I can't say.

What about "Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance"? That sucker is 6.4GB and I dont see it on the list. Anyone know what files I could delete to get it below 4.7GB?

3 Gigs of movies?

A lot of the movies are CG movies, so they obviously take up space. Also, in the /DVD directory are the files:

SH_VOICE_E.afs
SH_VOICE_J.afs

Those are the 2 voice files for Heroes (English and Japanese). I used it to change the Heroes voices to Japanese but you could delete either one of those if you don't plan on changing the language.

Also in /DVD is:
SNG_TBSFA4.adx
SNG_TBSFA4E.adx
SNG_TBSFA4J.adx

This is Team Chatix's Team Blast sound effect, in which their voices are used. SNG_TBSFA4.adx seems to be the default (but it doesn't look like it's used), while E and J are the English and Japanese ones (yes, this means that English is on there twice). Also delete which ones you don't want to use.

In /DVD/sound is:
bank3e.pac
bank3j.pac
I don't know what these do, but guessing from the E and J, I'm assuming there are some differences. Once again, delete whichever you want.

Finnaly in /DVD/movies:
S1_Jp_XD.sfd
S1_Eng_XD.sfd
is the opening video. The only difference is the title logo at the end, since it's a CG movie, you can save up some space with that.

If you plan on deleting the English voice files and only having the Japanese ones, keep in mind that you will have to rename all the Japanese files to the English ones. For example: IF you delete "SH_VOICE_E.afs" You will have to rename "SH_VOICE_J.afs" to "SH_VOICE_E.afs"

I'm not sure on how much space it saved from doing all this, but it's worth a try.

i started to look at NBA Street Vol2 last night .. so far u can delete the whole //MOVIES//filmroom directory as all it is is the videos for the different jams in the Inside Street section .. if u go into the jams / moves the xbox will freeze tho. this is 186 megs .. in the menu is also a couple of trailer movies, these are in /MOVIES nearest i can figure :] .. i tried deleting them all but it causes the game to freeze on load .. the best way to save the space is to zero out the bigger movies as they are named in a way that its tough to tell whats what .. might b able to hex the default and figure out which ones are the SSX3 demo movie / intro / trailer, or maybe i just need to look harder.. more later.

thank u everyone for this list so far, i have saved over 7 gigs :]
